    Ok so I went to the Running of the Brides in Manhasset, Long Island and got my dress!! It was a great price at $250 and was more than $1,000.

    Here's the pic on the model, I don't have my own pics yet, waiting for my sis to email me pics.

    There were dresses that were damaged and dirty, but mine was in excellent shape, didn't even look like it had been tried on yet!! I definitely recommend the Running of the Brides event if you can get to one, it truly was a blast with my girls and my fiance! He grabbed a ton of dresses, put them in a pile for me and then went and took a nap in the car - an hour later, I had my dress! The picture does it no justice, it has sequins and pearls all over the dress and sparkles like crazy! I am going to have a seamstress alter the bottom so it is more of a trumpet shape and not so much A-line, so I'll have to post it when that's done.

    What do you guys think??

                    Oh wow its beautiful!!!! I give you credit for going, people were telling me to go I said I'm scared..that many running brides? no way I'll get trampled on, that many women in one room is just way to much estrogen for me, Now I wish i did..your dress is amazing congrats!!
